Rema And Tems Become The First Afrobeats Artists Billed To Perform At The Famed Lollapalooza Festival
Following the enormous victory of talented female artist Tems at the Grammys and the continued success of Mavin Records signee Rema on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, the pair is set to disrupt the status quo by becoming the first and only afrobeats artists in history to perform at one of America’s biggest festivals, Lollapalooza.

Rema and Tems would share the stage with notable acts such as Kendrick Lamar, Billie Eilish, Tomorrow X Together, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Odesza, Lana Del Ray, Karol G, and others at the Lollapalooza event in Chicago. Tems’ and Rema’s invitation to perform at a prestigious festival in the United States shows the global acceptance of Afrobeats. Both artists rocked the NBA stage weeks ago at the All-Star Halftime show to a cheering crowd eager to see their every move.
The Lollapalooza event, which will take place over nine stages and four days, will mark its 30th anniversary in 2021. Fans may register for the SMS Presale at http://www.lollapalooza.com, which starts this Thursday, March 23, at 10 a.m. CT, to get 4-Day General Admission for $365 (while supplies last), as well as 4-Day GA+, VIP, and Platinum Tickets. Any unsold tickets will, after that, go on public sale.
Among the many ways that Lollapalooza gives back to the neighborhood is through the Lollapalooza Arts Education Fund, which has donated $2.2 million to assist the arts and education in Chicago Public Schools.
